Lisa on Ice - S6-E8

Other mistake: As Homer is signing Bart's academic alert form just before Marge starts talking to Lisa you can read the writing below the "Academic Alert" title, but the writing is completely incoherent including sentences such as "IMAEGTSIAD TSNHOJI NAMREB". Update; some of the "words" or parts of them are people's names, such as David, Stuart and Allison, but backwards. (00:03:50)

Homer's Barbershop Quartet - S5-E1

Other mistake: When the Be Sharps are singing at the Statue of Liberty, in some shots the stars in the sky are black.

Saturdays of Thunder - S3-E9

Other mistake: During the shot when Marge asks Homer who 'Hank Jones' is, you can see that the couch curves down on the left side of the screen, therefore putting her on the other side of the couch. (00:07:40)

Yoshi

Homer's Barbershop Quartet - S5-E1

Other mistake: When Bart and Lisa are looking at records, there is a picture of Homer. He had hair at the time the record was made, and the hat he's wearing isn't big enough to cover it, but there's none visible as there should be.

I Love Lisa - S4-E15

Other mistake: When Lisa and Ralph are swinging at the end, they are swinging outside the frame, but the swing is tied at the top of the inside of the frame.

Tree House of Horror II: A Simpsons Halloween - S3-E7

Other mistake: As Mr. Burns' fireplace rotates, the items on the top should have fallen off, but they didn't. They also disappear/reappear between frames. (00:16:10)

Yoshi

Saturdays of Thunder - S3-E9

Other mistake: When we first see Nelson's Roadkill 2000, Nelson is moving backwards, though we see his legs as moving forward. (00:13:25)

Black Widower - S3-E21

Other mistake: How can Sideshow Bob make the "I H8 BART" licence plate if there are no number keys on the keyboard? (00:04:45)

Black Widower - S3-E21

Other mistake: Near the beginning of the episode when Selma and Sideshow Bob arrive at the Simpsons' house, Bart and Lisa scream and hide behind Marge. Selma says "What the - ?" but the DVD subtitles say that Marge says it. It is shown "MARGE: What the - ?". (00:02:30)

Simpsons Bible Stories - S10-E18

Other mistake: Rev. Lovejoy is reading Genesis, the first book of the bible, but he is a good way into the book. Surely it would be at the front?

Dan Moat

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Other mistake: When the pupils are doing the test at school, you hear Miss Hoover say a question with three possible answers; but 1) There are 5 possible answers on the test when we see Lisa doing it, and 2) Miss Hoover says the 60th question, but Lisa looks to be nowhere near the 60th question.

Little Big Girl - S18-E12

Other mistake: At the end when Bart and Homer are singing "twinkle twinkle little star" Bart's tongue is green.

luke skyjogger

Mr. Plow - S4-E9

Other mistake: When Homer is crossing the rickety bridge in the snow plow there is no snow on the planks even though he is in a blizzard and the storm couldn't have just started because the path he just came from was covered in snow.

Homer vs. Patty and Selma - S6-E17

Other mistake: When Homer burns a dollar bill, he turns his cigar around 180 degrees. If you look carefully, the smoke soon comes from the different side than it did earlier.

OL1V3R666

Springfield Up - S18-E13

Other mistake: When Homer is being interviewed while feeding baby Lisa, there's a picture of 8 year old Lisa in the background.

Nikolai

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Other mistake: When Lisa rings Homer to tell him that she loves him, the shot of her talking is re-used from "Bart's Dog Gets an F." We can tell this because her cheeks inexplicably appear puffed up (in "Bart's Dog Gets an F" she had mumps).

Mr Top Hat

The Bart Wants What It Wants - S13-E11

Other mistake: Ned Flanders wins the $100 bill, but on the side it says $50.

kane raggett

Bart vs. Thanksgiving - S2-E7

Other mistake: In the DVD booklet, two errors are made for this episode. The booklet says Homer accuses Bart of ruining Thanksgiving and Bart was jealous of Lisa's centre piece. These are both incorrect: First, it wasn't Homer who accused Bart of ruining Thanksgiving, it was Marge who accused Bart of ruining Thanksgiving and second, at no point throughout the episode was Bart ever jealous of Lisa's centre piece.

Casual Person

Elementary School Musical - S22-E1

Other mistake: As Stephen Hawking rotates in circles, his front wheels stay locked in a straight position, rather than turning into the turn.

Movie Nut

Elementary School Musical - S22-E1

Other mistake: As Lisa and Marge drive out of Brooklyn, they see a mural painted by the two artists. As the camera looks at Lisa, the mural reflection should be reversed, but isn't.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage. (00:01:50)
